Really good company. Efficient, courteous, good price. How it should be with other garages but often isn't. Will definitely use again.
2nd time using the garage and very happy again, no issues at all can’t fault them! I will be continuing to use and recommend, thank you.
Professionals and on time as usual
Clutch went and they managed to fit us in short notice. Got it dropped off last thing and replacement was done next day. Good price and sorted quickly. Would recommend.

I had previously used WhoCanFixMyCar and was initially a bit cautious about using a garage from the site again after a bad experience elsewhere. However, when I needed a new cambelt and began looking for ballpark quotes I came across Merseyside Car Repairs LTD. The reviews seemed almost universal in their praise of the garage (both on the site and elsewhere) so I decided to take a punt; I couldn’t be happier that I did! Jay and from the garage was great to deal with. He was really knowledgeable and provided an excellent level of service from the off. When I dropped the car off he asked how I was getting to work across the water. He then took the time to drive me to the ferry station. Once work began I was sent regular updates with photos of the progress. I chose to have the car serviced at the same time as it was an absolute bargain. In the end, the cost of the work even ended up being £50 cheaper than my original quote. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this garage and have already done so to friends.
Excellent job ,great little place
I am fortunate enough to live on the side of the Wirral Peninsular where people live longer than on the side which has been neglected by national and local government. As such, I am guilty of forgetting what the more 'industrial' side of the Wirral can offer and have used the same local garage with CH47 postcode for 3 decades. So I decided to do something different when it came to replacing the Cambelt and water pump on my car. I'd never used the WCFMC website before so I tried it and 3 quotes came back, with MCR's being in the middle tier. I also needed a service so asked for a quote on that and they came back with a pleasing price. After I'd left my car with them and gone to work, I started to wonder whether I'd done the right thing not going to my usual place. But reminding myself the reviews were good, I stopped worrying. There was nothing to worry about whatsoever! As soon as they were into the job they sent me pics and a video via WhatsApp. Never, have I had this sort of communication from a garage and it was a brilliant move on their part. They kept me informed all the way and asked me if I wanted to change the fan-belt at the same time as it was cracking. They even detected a fault with my DPF filter under diagnostics, but rather than it being an expensive fix, they narrowed it down to a corroded earth wire. They also sent me more pics of them fixing this. Now my car is running far more smoothly and the economy is back to what it was 2 years ago. These guys really know their stuff and I would not hesitate recommending them or going back there. My regular garage would have been way more expensive, so more fool me for not taking a leap of faith into the unknown years ago.
The initial estimate was based on a new gearbox, however, I decided to also get them to replace my Clutch at the same time. The job was completed very professionally and updates provided on progress. First rate job done and the car is running brilliantly.
Done as expected
Superb service, finally found a reliable local garage. and 40% cheaper than two other local garages!
Clutch was replaced and works a treat
Excellent garage and excellent service what more can you ask for car needed a new calliper as well as the disc and pads garage Car was picked up and dropped off . This is not the first time I’ve used Thornton autos highly recommend such good service
Great service and goid machanic
Absolutely delighted with the first class service I received today. James and the team took my car in for an MOT which I urgently needed doing and it was back with me within a couple of hours. I found them professional, friendly and the over all price with repairs was fantastic. I would not hesitate to go there again. Thanks.
got seen within 5 mins of arrival by the Paul the mechanic, was told it would be about 1 /1.5 hrs but only took around half an hour, was talked through tbe work carried our, would recommend 100%
I'm happy... thanks
Excellent service. Price was what was quoted will definitely use this garage again. Thank you.
Friendly staff and quick to respond to queries. They even helped me replace my rear reg plate, as the screws had rusted and couldn't remove them. I was provided with a classic fiesta courtesy car which was great fun! I had my cambelt and water pump replaced on a Focus ST 225, the car is running well since. Will definitely consider using for further work.
Aircon regas change of 2 stop bulbs,,,,good and honest service.
Great service I was kept up to date when more work needed doing, would definitely recommend
Would definitely recommend them to anyone
Really good customer service. There was am unexpected fault found on my car when it was taken in for cam belt replacement which I paid extra for the part but the labour was free. They kept me updated throughout and even managed to sort me a little run around car at short notice as my car was undriveable and I needed to get to work. Customer service was brilliant. As soon as they received the new part required for my car it was fitted immediately and ready for collection later that day.
Craig sorted the welding of a new kit to join the complete snap on the connection of the DPF to the flexi pipe (exhaust system). I dropped the car off mid morning and was called later in the afternoon for pickup. On arrival, I was shown photos of the work undertaken with an explanation of what was done. I'll be going back for future work.
Absolutely impress with their service. Source through 'whocanfixmycar.com', at 10pm 25/01/18, regarding under,carriage problem. Response was immediate. found 2 garages who can do the job. Went with MCR garage in Wheatland lane as it was the closest. Text them at 7am, got immediate reply, booked car in for 8am, fixed by 8.45am. Don't be confused by the names of the 2 guys there, both are call Jay's. They are both warm, friendly and willy to help and give advice. I would recommend them anytime. Will tell you the truth regarding how difficult the job will be according to make and model of cars.
Excellent, can't fault this garage for the service given. They even took the time to phone round to get the best possible price for the parts.
Job done the same day, can not fault the work. Friendly, fast and efficient service
An exhaust system has the primary function of guiding fumes away from a controlled combustion section of an engine. The exhaust system on a car is carefully designed so the fumes omitted from the engine can be safely transported away from passengers in the car.
The exhaust system is made up of a several parts, all of which could cause potential issues if damaged. Though you only see the tail pipe from the outside of the car, the exhaust system is a large system.
The exhaust ensures fumes are transported from the engine all the way to the tailpipe at the back of the car. The gas flows down from the engine to the flange and onto the catalytic converter, it then travels on to the muffler and resonance chamber before going to the resonator and finally out through the tailpipe.
All of these parts have distinctive functions with piping connecting them along the bottom of the car. Each section of the system has to be completely airtight and functioning properly to ensure the gases are released into the outside environment safely.
Because there are several components of the exhaust system and because it usually stretches the full length of the car, costs can vary.
Depending on the area, part and extent of the damage, you are likely to pay different prices. Some repairs may only consist of sealing a small leak whereas others may result in replacing entire pipes or elements.
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, there is a chance that engine performance will be negatively affected. This is due to the escape of pressure at the wrong point of the system.
It is essential that an exhaust system is not damaged as leakage could pose danger to those inside the vehicle. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides could seep into a car if the exhaust is damaged. These gases are also extremely hot and would cause serious damage if they were to meet a passenger.
The piping in an exhaust system must be heat resistant due to the high temperatures of these compounds and if the exhausts integrity is compromised, anything close to the damaged area will be exposed to potential harm.
If your DPF is also blocked or not functioning properly, soot and particulate will escape from the system and cause damage to the environment and people in the surrounding area.
If there is an oil leak, there is only a very small chance that the problem is the exhaust system. This is due to the fact that engine oil doesn’t course through the exhaust like it does for a part like the head gasket.
However, if there is an oil leak, it may get into the combustion system and the result will be blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
A warning light will come on but it will not likely be the check engine light. This is because a problem with the exhaust will be detected specifically by oxygen sensors or the sensors in the DPF if your exhaust system is fitted with one.
A common symptom for a damaged exhaust is a loud roaring noise being emitted from your vehicle. This noise would indicate that you have a problem with the silencer part of the system. A common issue with silencers is corrosion by acidic moisture which is caused by a build-up of the damaging substance.
If a part of the system has cracked or a hole has appeared, you will be able to hear a hissing noise and a chugging sound could mean there is a blockage in the system. If the exhaust is leaking, the issue needs to be addressed immediately as the fumes are dangerous.
There is also a chance that the exhaust is leaking water, in which case, there is a crack or hole somewhere in the system as a possible result of a water leak from the head gasket.
If you hear the exhaust popping or rattling beneath your car it could mean that your exhaust has become misaligned and if you can hear a loud metallic vibration it usually means that something is hitting the exhaust pipe. It could also mean a clamp, mounting or support bracket exhaust is loose.
Hangers and brackets are essential for holding the system in place so if these parts become damaged there is a significant risk that the rest of the system will suffer damage as a result.
If you are able to get underneath your car, it is always the best way to check for signs of damage.
One of the most common issues associated with exhausts is rust build up, however this can often be a minor issue as some pealing of metal is not a huge issue.
If there is a build-up of rust on any part of the system, use a tool such as a screwdriver to see how strong the area feels, if the integrity is solid then the part won’t need replacing however if the metal feels weak when some pressure is applied, its time you get the part removed and a new one installed.
Black smoke coming from your exhaust means that your engine is burning more fuel than it should. This is often caused by a problem with your fuel injectors, air filter or fuel-pressure regulator. Alternatively, the fuel line could be clogged. Burning excessive fuel will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy meaning that you will be spending much more money getting from A-B.
If your exhaust in pumping out blue smoke, oil will have leaked into the engine and been burned in the system. This happens following the valve guide seals or piston rings wearing out and allowing engine oil into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is only meant for the lubrication of parts which are in constant contact with each other.
If engine oil is leaking into the combustion system, you need to have the issue addressed with an oil changeimmediately as low engine oil levels will be incredibly detrimental to your car.
If white smoke is coming from your exhaust, your car could be low on engine coolant from the result of a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block or a head gasket failure from overheating.
If engine coolant gets anywhere near the combustion chamber, the liquid will be vaporised and converted into a white gas which is then pushed out through the tailpipe.
If the exhaust is smoking thick black, white or blue fumes, there is also an issue with the system as the exhaust should not be blowing this colour of smoke. To find out why your exhaust is blowing smoke use our dedicated guide.
Car exhaust repair is a service which can be priced at a variety of levels. This is due to the fact that there are a number of things which could go wrong.
